It usually starts with a stray cat longingly looking
into your eyes. You toss a few scraps from your lunch to her and
you feel a glow inside as she gobbles it up. The next day she's
there again and you notice she's brought a friend. So, they get
a little more of your lunch. As you peer into their soul you
realize that you can't turn your back. You begin buying cat
food by the bag and before you know it you are feeding a colony
of feral cats. Then it dawns upon you that they need water
too. You begin packing your supplies of good quality cat food,
fresh water and maybe a few cat treats into you car daily for
your new life as a 'Feral Cat Feeder'.
You then start realizing the number of cats is growing so you
begin researching population control amongst ferals and you
learn about TNRM (Trap, Neuter, Return and Manage). An excellent
program where the feral cat feeders
Trap their cats' take them to be 'fixed' (spayed or
Return them to their colony and
Manage their care. The feeders usually pay for the
surgery and they have their cats micro chipped to themselves in
case they are turned into the Humane Society.
Feral cat feeders are modern day heroes. They feed their
colonies 365 days a year, rain or shine. They pay for the food
and supplies out of their own pockets, sometimes hundreds of
dollars a month, not including gas!
They NEED help!!!!Some are maxed out on their credit cards and
always deprive themselves before they'd cut back on feeding the
cats! Won't you take a minute to go through our web site and
consider 'adopting' a feral cat feeder? We know not everyone is
able to do the arduous labor involved in feeding. We also know
that there are many, many good hearted people who want to do
something to help. Perhaps one of the feeders is in your
neighborhood and you've seen them out there with the cats in the
pouring rain and you just wish you could help. Well, you
CAN! Contact them directly from their web page or send a check
to us designated to a specific feeder. If you'd like to help ALL
the cats just send your donation to us and we will divide it
equally among all the feeders. If you'd rather donate
nutritiously complete cat food that's GREAT!!!! Give us a call
and we'll come pick it up!!!
Ours is a web site solely for the feeders. We don't have a
shelter, or an adoption process. There are a few REALLY great
non profits in Hawaii that do those noble tasks. We focus on
those little angels who have lived their precious lives in the
streets, scraping trash cans for food and living as best they
can day to day. Don't get us wrong, when we see a feral cat who
needs medical help we get them the help they need!
So many times we see cats who have obviously been dumped into
the street by their 'family'. They are usually a lot bigger and
much more scared than the ferals. They find themselves living in
the street after having been a house cat. You can see the fear
in their eyes, wondering why their 'owners' don't love them
anymore. When we see these cats we do EVERYTHING we can to find
out who the former owner is (sometimes they are just
lost). After that we try very hard to find them a home. Usually
by getting advice from some of the fine cat non profits.
Here is our wish list. Can you please help?
Nutritious cat food (Some feeders go through 100-200 16 pound
bags a week!!!!
Money for Vet visits, Spay/Neuter surgery, Flea Medication
plastic containers for food and water (bento kine)
